Guest blogger Ian Morrison from LINC Tasmania shares some highlights from the newly digitised Tasmanian newspapers.
The latest Tasmanian additions to Trove, funded by the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, include more than 30 titles, spanning the 1820s to the 1920s. Trove now provides access to more than 100 of the approximately 130 newspapers published in Tasmania before 1954.
This year Trove has grown to include over 500 million items, so we wanted to highlight this achievement as a special thanks to all our partners.
With more than 57,000 visitors a day, and over 20.88 million visits each year to Trove, we hope this information keeps you informed, entertained and inspired.
Last month, local ABC radio presenter, Hailey Renault, asked Mount Isa residents about what having MIMAG—the Mount Isa Mining Magazine—available in Trove meant to them.
MIMAG was the in-house magazine of Mount Isa Mines; copies from 1947 to 1996 have been digitised and are now available in Trove.
This month’s Trove highlight is the New South Wales Government Gazette. The lives of thousands of ordinary people are mentioned in every issue, making it a valuable source when researching Australia’s history.
Exploring the NSW Government Gazette in Trove will take you on a journey from 1832 to 2001.
